This visually magnificent new Chinese film is a unique hybrid of fiction, historical reminiscence, and experimental theatre. When a longtime clown in a renowned Chinese theatrical troupe dies, he finds himself reliving 50 years of art, struggle, and love during China’s tumultuous 20th century—before entering the afterlife “Critic’s Pick...A magnificently layered historical epic…Breathes new life into a story as old as civilization.” –NY Times. “A huge epochal fresco.” –Senses of Cinema. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 179 min.
